Connections: January 25


SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAI’m so excited I’m sky-blue-pink!

I can barely write

and hardly think!

My amaryllis, so long dormant,

finally wakened

and relieved my torment.

I planted it on December 1st

zealously sunned it

and tended its thirst.

But it wouldn’t sprout

and my scruples multiplied

until last week

when I knew it hadn’t died.

A portent of great beauty

from its recalcitrant bulb gut —

you will politely refrain from noting

it looks a lot like Jabba the Hutt.

  1. Ha! Your bulb does look like Jabba the Hutt, but what matters is the lovely swan that will bloom from the ugly duckling! Congratulations.

  2. Thank you! I agree that a swan is imminent, and I can’t wait to see it.
